ORLANDO, Fla. (October 15, 2014) – Wyndham Vacation Ownership (WVO), the world’s largest vacation ownership company and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies (NYSE:WYN), presented a 2014 Cadillac SRX to Mark and Julia Peterson as part of the company’s Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes. In an event that took place during the Wyndham Championship, an official PGA TOUR event at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., company executives presented the Petersons, of Carrollton, Va., with the new luxury car.
The Petersons have been CLUB WYNDHAM® owners since 2004.
“We decided to purchase the ownership to have the chance to vacation in places we wouldn’t normally go,” said Mark Peterson. “The resorts that we’ve been to have been awesome – a lot of things to do and the locations have been great.”
In June 2014, during a family vacation at Wyndham Smoky Mountains, Mark and Julia were entered into the sweepstakes for a chance to win the luxury car. In July, they were randomly drawn from more than 123,000 entries.
As a part of its Accelerate into the Fast Lane Sweepstakes, the company is giving away one luxury car, worth up to $50,000, every quarter throughout 2014. Owners and guests are automatically entered in the sweepstakes when they attend a sales presentation or owner update at a participating resort. Please view the Official Rules for entry details.
